The Connected Educator Culture

The Connected Educator Culture | Connected Educator | Scoop.it

"One does not need to be connected to be a good educator, but if one is a good educator, being connected can make him, or her a better, and a more relevant educator. This is not a course that is taken, but rather a mindset. It requires a love of learning, and a trust in other educators to be sharing, caring, and transparent."

Expanding the Circle — Connected Educator Month Day 2 #ce13 | Change Agency | Connected Educator | Scoop.it

One of my usual activities while I am working out is to browse the stream on Twitter and Facebook to see what people are posting/talking about for that day.  Today is the second day of Connected Educator Month 2013, and as I scroll through all of the #ce13 tweets one thing I noticed is the large number of people writing blog posts about being being connected!  I don’t have exact numbers from last year, but I definitely get the sense that the number of people blogging about CEM is much higher than it was last year...

Stephanie Sandifer's curator insight, October 14, 2013 10:23 AM

When educators become connected, the students benefit as well.  Connected educators become exposed to a wider variety of resources, methods, and strategies for enhancing and improving the learning environment and the learning experience for all students.  Connected educators also begin to see value in creating learning experiences that are built on connectedness and this will translate into the creation of a more connected learning environment where students will begin to communicate, collaborate, and create new knowledge with peers around the world.  This global connectedness will increasingly become an essential workplace skill as it allows the individual to tap into a global connected knowledge-base (made up of their peers) and access just-in-time learning or information relevant to current work.

- 5 ideas for #ConnectedEducators to connect students #CE13 ~ Tech & Learning

- 5 ideas for #ConnectedEducators to connect students #CE13 ~ Tech & Learning | Connected Educator | Scoop.it

by Lisa Nielsen

 

"Unlike their parents, today’s students can communicate, collaborate, cooperate, and connect with the world in meaningful ways that were never before possible. It is incumbent upon educators to support students in doing this effectively in order to empower them to do work that will not only lead them to personal success, but is also worthy of the world. "So, how can educators do this?

"Here are five ways to help your students get connected:Uncover student interests.
Start by supporting young people in discovering, then developing their interests, which may turn into passions. One way to do this is by giving them a student interest inventory (visit here and here for samples and info).Connect at the local level.
Once a class or school has supported students in identifying interests, share the results so those who care about the same things can connect. Schools using a service like ePals might want to share their interests with students in partner schools to widen the circle with which they are connecting.Connect via your school’s online platform. Once you have identified student interests in your school, help them set up groups online via places like Edmondo and in person with school-based groups and clubs where students and teachers who share interests can connect, discuss, learn, grow, and create.Connect via social media. Support students in finding those who share their interests via social media using platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Google+. If a group or hashtag doesn’t exist, support and empower students in starting their own.Comment on blogs and publications. Help students find out who’s writing about what they care about. When they do, support them in joining the conversation by commenting on those topics and even proposing a guest post or article. "Congratulations! Once you’ve supported students in these five ways, you’ve put them on the road to becoming a connected student with a learning network that will assist them in achieving success in areas that are of deep personal interest."
